Bahir\'s DUP journal
 
I thought I might as well make a journal for my new split. I might not write down every workout, but hopefully, this will help me to keep track of my workouts.

My split is as follows:

Day 1: Upper body power - compound exercises, 3-5 sets each, around 5 reps each
Day 2: Lower body power - compound exercises, 3-5 sets each, around 5 reps each
Day 3: Rest day (might do cardio on rest days, or play basketball)
Day 4: Upper body hypertrophy - chest; triceps; biceps, 3-4 sets per exercise, 8-12 reps per set
Day 5: Lower body hypertrophy - legs; lower back (DL's); calves; abs, 3-4 sets per exercise, 8-12 reps per set
Day 6: Back/shoulders/traps, 3-4 sets per exercise, 8-12 reps per set
Day 7: Rest day


I might alter the program somewhat later depending on what I experience. I just realized that I might face some problems with doing back and shoulders on hypertrophy day, and then upper body power two days afterwards. If so, I'll probably reconfigure some things.

This is about how the workouts will look (the power days will probably always stay the same in terms of exercises, but I'll vary some of the exercises on hypertrophy days from workout to workout.

Upper power (3-5 sets per exercise, around 5 reps per set)
-Bench press
-Barbell rows
-Military press
-Dynamic barbell shrugs

Lower power (3-5 sets per exercise, around 5 reps per set)
-Squats
-Smith mashine leg press/floor press (my gym has no regular leg press)
-Keystone stiff legged deadlifts
-Calves
-Abs

Rest day

Hypertrophy chest/triceps/biceps
-Incline bench press
-Flat dumbbell bench press
-Incline dumbbell bench press
-(triceps) Cable bar press supersetted with Alternating dumbbell curls
-Barbell curls supersetted with Rope pressdowns (triceps)
-Skullcrushers supersetted with Reverse barbell curls

Hypertrophy lower
-Deadlifts
-Squats
-Leg curls
-Leg extensions
-Calves
-Abs

Hypertrophy back/shoulders/traps
-Pulldows
-Barbell rows (? good doing this twice a split?)
-Dumbbell rows
-Dumbbell shoulder press supersetted with T-bar rows
-L-laterals supersetted with Dumbbell Shrugs
-Bent over laterals supersetted with pullovers

Rest day, then start over




First workout (15 June) - Upper body power

Bench press
100 kg's, 5 reps
100 kg's, 4 reps
97.5 kg's, 5 reps
97.5 kg's 4 reps (a bit unsure about this one, might have been less weight (95 kg's) or fewer reps)

Barbell rows
100 kg's, 8 reps
105 kg's, 6 reps
105 kg's, 5 reps
105 kg's, 5 reps

100 kg's, 3 reps

Keystone stiff legged deadlifts - haven't done this exercise at all before, didn't feel it much at all, except when I went pretty deep - then I felt it just above the backside of my knee. Does anyone have a good alternative compound exercise for stiff legged DL's? I don't think I can do glute ham raises in my gym...

Third workout - hypertrophy chest/triceps/biceps
Note:
Legs still sore as hell from two days ago...

Note:
The dumbbells at my gym are a bit wierd... I think they are supposed to weigh the regular numbers (20, 22.5, 25 etc), but when me and my buddy tested it on the scale it was about 2 kg's heavier... so when I say 30 kg's, it's actually about 32 kg's...

Note: when there is a question mark afterwards, it means I'm not quite sure (can't remember exactly)

Incline dumbbell bench press
30 kg's, 12 reps initially, 3 more with rest-pause
30 kg's, 8 reps initially, 4 more with rest-pause
25 kg's, 10 reps initially, 2 more with rest-pause

Flat DB bench press
Comment - obviously weaker because of doing inclines first, would have used 35's or 40's otherwise...
30 kg's, 10 reps(?), 2 more with r-p
30 kg's, 8 reps(?), 2 more with r-p
25 kg's, 12 reps(?), 3 more with r-p

Incline bench press
Comment: pecs were pumped and fried...
60 kg's, 12 reps, 3 r-p
60 kg's, 10 reps(?), 2 r-p
60 kg's, 10 reps(?), 2 r-p


Triceps & biceps

Rope pressdowns
Note: before I have almost always done triceps in a separate workout (not directly after chest), so I was a bit weaker (about 10 kg's weaker)
40 kg's, 10 reps, 4 r-p
40 kg's, dropset 8 reps, 30 kg's - 3 reps, 20 kg's - 6 reps
35 kg's, 12 reps(?), 3 r-p

In between those sets I did:
Alternating DB curls
22.5 kg's, 6 reps per arm
20 kg's, 8 reps per arm
17.5 kg's, 10 reps per arm

Seated french presses
Note: went pretty light
25 kg's, 15 reps
25 kg's, 12 reps
25 kg's, 12 reps

In between I did:
Barbell curls
Note: gotta get a lot stronger on this one...
40 kg's, 8 reps
35 kg's, 8 reps
30 kg's, 10 reps

Straight bar cable pressdowns
45 kg's, 10 reps
40 kg's, think I did a dropset...
35 kg's, 10 or so reps...

Reverse grip barbell curls
30 kg's, 3 sets, 6-10 reps

Sumo deadlifts or Good mornings would work. Also, weighted hypers if you have 100lb plates at your gym. You could also get a buddy to hold your ankles down (just put a pat under your knees) and do GHRs.

Good workout Bahir. I've just been reading quickly through your journal and whats going on with your gym being closed so often?

Bahir 06-26-2007 04:35 PM

Re: Bahir\'s DUP journal
 
Well, in Sweden, we celebrate midsummer (day and eve). For some reason, the gym chose to close those two days, plus the two days around.

Last summer, and the summers before that, the gym hasn't even been open, for periods of 1-2 months. This summer though, they are working together with another gym (both are state-owned), so that on mondays and tuesdays, my gym is open during the first part of the day, and the other one opens at around noon. Wednesdays and thursdays, it's the reverse. Fridays, my gym is open from 1 pm to 6 pm. Saturdays closed, and sundays from 10 am to 4 pm. So there you have it.
